TriBridge Partners has recently become a United Benefit Advisors® (UBA) Preferred Partner. UBA is a Partner-owned alliance of nearly 140 premier independent benefit advisory firms. With more than 200 offices throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, UBA ranks in the top 10 in global employee benefits revenue.
UBA Partners — who actively collaborate with more than 2,000 experienced benefits professionals — are uniquely prepared to share their collective wisdom with busy employers who want the assurance that they are making informed choices that improve the lives of their employees and their families.
UBA Partners and their clients collectively produce an annual health plan benchmarking survey that includes responses from more than 19,557 health plans sponsored by nearly 11,524 employers nationwide. It is by far the most comprehensive, validated survey of medical plan design and plan costs currently conducted.
The UBA Health Plan Survey provides small to midsize employers with valuable benchmarking data that previously were only available to large corporations. By using this data, advisors who are Partners of UBA can help employers more accurately evaluate costs, contrast the current benefit plan’s effectiveness against competitors’ plans and adjust accordingly. This gives employers a distinct competitive edge in recruiting and retaining a superior workforce.
UBA also sponsors the Benefit Opinions Survey, which delineates employers’ positions on health care strategy, benefits philosophy and opinion, health plan management, employee communications and more.
Being a partner with UBA brings many benefits to the clients of TriBridge Partners.
